The 6 Most Annoying People On Facebook

I’ve been part of the Facebook world for a few years. I’m actually so familiar with Facebook that I wish there was a way to “like” people’s work emails instead of actually responding. I think this would facilitate better response...Read More

    Dear Old Navy, I recently purchased a pair of your pink sparkle jelly sandals for the Lady. To say she was excited by this purchase would be an understatement. Anything pink, anything sparkle, anything shoe related has some immediate effect...Read More

    Have You Ever Wanted To Give A Time Out To An Adult?

    I was sitting with my husband and kids in McDonald’s stealing their fries, when I nearly gave my first adult-to-adult time out.  This is akin to a citizen’s arrest but much scarier to administer.

    This is what happened: A woman passed by our table and went into the lady’s room hastily. The odd part is that she had her fountain drink in her hand. I shuddered a little at the thought of taking your beverage into a public bathroom, but then convinced myself that she was just dumping the ice in the sink and throwing it away. READ MORE

    Assault With A Healthy Salad

    I’m a bit of an eater. Okay, maybe that’s an understatement. It’s like saying Tiger Woods dabbles in golf, or that Kayne West is only a slight douchebag.

    This girl loves to eat and doesn’t like anything to stand in the way of her and any sort of dipping sauce.
    So when I went to lunch with my friend Scissorhands (not her real name) and her mom, I was there for the company, but I was also there for the food!

    I arrived and we began chit chatting and catching up, all the while pretending as if I was interested in our conversation and not the appetizers at the table next to. (Would it kill them to offer their neighbor a bite of their dip?) READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - The Most Honest Kids' Birthday Invitation You'll Ever See

    The Most Honest Kids’ Birthday Invitation You’ll Ever See

    If you’ve ever had a major party, or a wedding, or an epic Memorial Day barbecue, then chances are you sent out invitations. And if you sent out invitations, then ask yourself this: why didn’t you invite me?

    Oh no, wait, that’s not the question I was going to have you ask yourself (although it IS a valid one).

    The question you should ask yourself is, “Did anyone RSVP?”

    More and more, it seems like the RSVP is ignored. I’m not sure if people get busy and forget, or if RSVP considered a mere suggestion, or if people ignore it because they think it’s just an antiquated leftover from the quaint days of yesteryear (sort of like how we still open letters with “Dear So-and-So,” even if we hate So-and-So’s guts and don’t consider them “dear” even in the slightest). Whatever the case, fewer and fewer people are bothering to répondez, s’il vous plaît these days. READ MORE
